ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The world economy has recently been experiencing highly volatile foreign exchange and capital markets, a spread of unusual monetary policy actions, and disappointing growth and stability. These developments have led to a host of policy proposals ranging from reforms of the international monetary system built on rules-based monetary policy in each country to more interventions in the form of capital controls, exchange market actions, and macro-prudential regulations.
Since the Hoover conference “Frameworks for Central Banking in the Next Century,” held in May 2014, debates about central bank policy have intensified. The aim of the conference is to examine these recent developments and consider policy options.
This conference is by invitation only.
